The first ELG open call was closed on April 30, 2020. In total, 110 project proposals were accepted for evaluation with applicants for 29 countries.
We received slightly more project proposals from SMEs (62) than research organisations (48). The majority of the proposals focused on contributing resources, services, tools, or data sets to the European Language Grid platform to increase its coverage (79), while there are 31 proposals developing applications using language resources and technologies available in the ELG platform.
The ELG Pilot Board has selected 10 projects, amounting to a funding sum of EUR 1,363,915 in total. The selected projects will now sign the Third Party Agreement and start their execution phase.
The whole ELG team is excited about this enormous interest in the European Language Grid and the Language Technology topic in general. Congratulations to all successful applicants!
